SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Wavesat Inc., a leading supplier of Broadband Wireless semiconductor solutions, will launch its Odyssey 9000 family of LTE chipsets at the 4G World in Chicago next week, with the first LTE chipset featuring CAT-3 performance (100 Mb/s downlink, 50 Mb/s uplink) for mobile devices including USB dongles, data cards, mobile handsets and MIDs. The Odyssey 9000 is a highly integrated SOC with industry beating performance and power consumption, along with a highly flexible and programmable architecture to easily adapt to LTE’s evolving requirements. Wavesat’s award winning multi-protocol architecture also allows the Odyssey 9000 to support other 4G technologies including WiMAX and Japan’s XGP standard.

“As the industry moves rapidly to strategic use of IP applications, such as will be enabled by LTE, Wavesat’s product family and approach appears well positioned to offer an agile response to changing product and market demands,” said Robert Syputa, Partner and Principal Analyst with Maravedis. “What sets the Odyssey 9000 apart from the competitors -- more than a time-to-market advantage -- is that Odyssey 9000 follows a highly flexible and ‘future proof’ system architecture that can help lower life-cycle product costs and provide a migration to multiple radio access network operating or roaming models.”
